Hi to go for a poo I sometimes need to help myself, but the past few nights when I ve gone I ve checked my poo and it s covered in a yellow/white coloured mucus . What is this? I also used my hands today to check the white part (which looked like a white worm type thing which was quite long when I pulled it apart) can you help me please ?

Thanks for query,
You must check your stool.There are chances of worms.Usually worms infection is associated with itching around anus with anemia.
The other possibility is of anerobic infection.Some times undigested food also passes in stool looks like this.
Stool report highlight it.
